Tell me happy things

I am compelled to write the WHOLE truth. The words of Jesus are the WHOLE truth, abd nothing but the truth. 

“‘When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none. Then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order. Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation.’”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭12‬:‭43‬-‭45‬ 

Reach for your Bible and turn to Ephesians 6:12

Written in Blood

In his book  Written In Blood, Robert Coleman tells the story of a girl who was suffering from a disease that would soon take her life, unless…” Lisa was told that without a blood transfusion her death would be imminent. Thankfully, she had a little brother who shared her blood type, which was very rare. The fact that he’d defeated this same disease three years earlier offered the doctor even greater hope for success. So the physician carefully explained all of this to Lisa’s little brother, Dennis, discretely informing him that without the transfusion his sister would surely die.”

“For the life of a creature is in the blood…” Lev. 17:11

“Do you think you would be brave enough to give your blood to your sister?” the doctor asked. Dennis’ lips trembled nervously as he contemplated the situation, but finally, he smiled and said, “For my sister, yes, I’ll do it.”

 As the two children were rolled into the hospital room, Lisa’s body looked enervated and pale, while Dennis appeared quite robust. The boy smiled at his sister. Together, they watched the blood make its way through the clear plastic tubing as it flowed out of Dennis’ arm and into her’s. Eventually, the smile began to fade from the boy’s little face, and he lay there feeling weak. Looking intently up at the elderly MD, he asked, “Doctor, when am I going to die?”

Dennis thought he would have to give all of his blood to Lisa, believing he was trading his life for his sister’s. Because of his love for her, he was prepared to pay that price.

When the Son of God became a man, coming to earth revealing God to mankind, one of the memorable truths He disclosed sheds light on that young boy’s willingness to sacrifice himself for his sister. Jesus said, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

That’s precisely what Jesus came to do—to be the Christ, the Savior—to offer Himself as a sacrifice to pay the terrible penalty for the sins of the whole world. “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; ‘by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

Since no other person who has ever lived on earth is perfect, this was the only way a perfectly innocent sacrifice could be made. God Himself had to provide the Lamb for the sarifice.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

The good news of Jesus Christ has come, been declared and preached. This news concerns the greatest love ever known, and the greatest love ever shown.

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

God loves us. Jesus sacrificed Himself, giving His life blood to save you and me. God wants us to repent of our sins—turn to Him, and simply believe on His Son, Jesus Christ, and trust Him to be the Lord of our lives.

Forever and Forever

WHO IS HE? Is He God? How can He be both man and God? 
God put in place a method and process by which we can be saved from the eternal hell of destruction. The Apostle John authenticates it and is written in Scripture. The WORD is Jesus!

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”
‭‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭1‬-‭5‬ ‭(nlt)


“In the last days there will be VERY DIFFICULT TIMES!  

People will

•love only themselves and their money. 

•they will be boastful and proud, 

•scoffing at God, •disobedient to their parents, and •ungrateful. 

•they will consider nothing sacred. 

•they will be unloving and unforgiving; 

•they will slander others and 

•have no self-control. •they will be cruel and 

•hate what is good. •they will betray their friends, 

•be reckless, 

•be puffed up with pride, and 

•love pleasure rather than God. 

•they will act religious, but 

•they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:1-5‬ (nlt)


WATER – 75% of the earth’s surface is water.  Our body is made up of about 60%+ water.  Water is mentioned 722 times in the Bible and from the gitgo in:

•Genesis 1:2 (kjv) God reminds us:

“God’s Spirit was moving over the water.”

•We are baptized with water. “‘I baptize you with water to show that your hearts and lives have changed.’”

Matthew 3:11 (ncv)

•The woman at the Well said to Jesus,

“‘Sir, give me this water so I will never be thirsty. ….’”

John 4:15 (ncv)

•Medical science tells us that warm water therapy can be used to reduce anxiety, and help expectant mothers and fibromyalgia patients. Water is a healing agent. 

Although Samuel Taylor  Coleridge wrote “water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,” (“The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,”) and almost one billion people on earth do not have clean, fresh water, in this country, the USA, we have good, clean water available to us.  At the time of this writing temperatures are projected to exceed 100 degrees for the next few days in Sacramento.  I’m not a doctor, nor the son-of-a-doctor,  but I would certainly be within my right to recommend drinking cool, fresh, pure water in the next few days, and make WATER a regular part of your diet. 

Overcome Addiction

FASTING IS NOT a hunger strike. It helps you to overcome addictions, and gives God a chance to strengthen your resolve. 

“‘When you practice some appetite-denying discipline to better concentrate on God, don’t make a production out of it. It might turn you into a small-time celebrity but it won’t make you a saint. If you ‘go into training’ inwardly, act normal outwardly. Shampoo and comb your hair, brush your teeth, wash your face. God doesn’t require attention-getting devices. He won’t overlook what you are doing; he’ll reward you well.’”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:16-18‬ (msg)

God’s presence will be strengthened, and your mental and physical condition will be refreshed. 

Remember the cereal “Mikey?” He said, “Try it. You’ll like it!”

Religious Games

The Jewish children of Jesus’ day played a game dividing into two groups. One group pretended to play musical instruments or singing. The second group responded in a manner totally out of character. Jesus responded to the religious leaders who gossiped against John the Baptist as being too strict and to Jesus as being too liberal in mercy and  joy.   They said of Jesus: “Look, a glutton and winebibber, a friend of sinners!”  

Read Matthew 11:16-19

His Face

JESUS had a happy face – His disciples tried to keep the little children away, but 
“when Jesus noticed he said to his disciples, “‘Let the children come to me, ….’”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭10:14‬

Children only run to someone who has a happy face. 

Charles Allen tells of when Bertel Thorvaldsen took a friend to see his famous statue of Christ with arms outstretched and head bowed between them, the friend said, “But I cannot see his face.”  The renowned sculptor answered, “If you would see the face of Christ, you must get on your knees.”
“Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His face,
There to sing forever of His saving grace;
On the streets of Glory let me lift my voice;
Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice.”
(R. H. Cornelius)
